St. Joseph's Day Collection

1 review
St. Joseph's Day, also known as the feast of St. Joseph's, is celebrated on March 19th in Sicily. We've gathered some of Bona Furtuna's finest Sicilian fare to help you celebrate. The collection includes our award-winning Biancolilla Centinara extra virgin olive oil, organic Wild Harvested Fennel Pollen from La Furtuna Estate, Sicilian Sea Salt and Herb Blend, and Mafaldine pasta.

Mafaldine di San Giuseppe

As the legend goes, Sicily’s prayers were answered when San Giuseppe, Sicily’s patron saint of artisans, ended a legendary drought in Medieval Sicily. To honor him, St. Joseph’s Day is celebrated every March 19th with a feast that includes Mafaldine di San Giuseppe (recipe included with collection). We like to add a splash of extraordinary Fennel Pollen to this flavorful dish in recognition of the wild fennel that has been a staple for many Sicilians.

Hints of Wild Flowers and Herbs

Cultivated and crafted on La Furtuna Estate, our Biancolilla Centinara organic Italian extra virgin olive oil hosts medium fluidity with medium-green fruitiness and hints of wild herbs and dried flowers. Offering powerfully balanced bitterness and pungency, this single-origin olive oil shares the aroma of tomato, fresh grass, almond and artichoke and pairs well with fresh mozzarella, bistecca alla fiorentina, or a fresh peach salad.

Try With Tonight's Timballo

With a touch of sweetness, herbal hints, sunkissed grain, and ascents of cinnamon, Bona Furtuna Mafaldine provides a great al dente texture and elastic structure. Representative to what humans have been eating for thousands of years and easy for digestion, feel the nutritional benefits of ancient grain pasta in every bite. In Sicily, Mafaldine is often used in “Timballo,” an Italian baked dish, or prepared with swordfish or anchovies, tomato paste, pine nuts, and raisins. For a citrus twist, try “Mafaldine with Shrimp and Lemon.”

Salt Infused with Oregano and Lemon

The perfect touch when grilling white meats and simply sensational on vegetables, the 100% organic Sicilian Sea Salt and Herb Blend sources air-dried oregano, hand-picked lemon peel and black pepper from the fields of La Furtuna Estate. Find yourself hypnotized by notes of zesty citrus and subtle heat from crisp peppercorn in one of our favorite herbed sea salt blends.

Sicily's Finest For A Sicilian Holiday

St. Joseph's Day (Giorno di San Giuseppe) is celebrated in Sicily with parades and feasts in Sicily. Traditional pastries like sfingi di San Guiseppe are a must. Our collection in honor of this holiday features some favorites harvested from our farm (Biancolilla EVOO and Wild Foraged Fennel Pollen), Sicilian Mafaldine pasta and an herbaceous Trapani Sea Salt infusion.
